Triming helicopter on expert
I completed campaing in ToH on Trainee, now I want try flight on expert but i always have problem with trim. Helicopter always roll and turn right and raise nose too much. Any adcvices for noob?
I basically use a technique similar to what I was taught when I started lessons on fixed wing aircraft. I hold the desired attitude with the controls and slowly adjust the trim until the controls are in a neutral position; requiring no real force to hold them there.
Hold the joystick and rudders until you obtain a nice level forward flight. You will be holding the joystick off center, so you are fighting the springs desire to return to the centre position. I have the trim set on my X 52 pro with cyclic trim on a hat and the rudder on two buttons each side (my pref). If I am pushing the stick to the right I slowly tap the trim, while at the same time adjusting my joystick so that the same attitude is maintained. Watching would see my hand slowly move to the centered position on the joystick. On the screen the helicopter would remain in the same attitude basically.
Same process is used for the pitch, yaw. My system is to focus on each one on it's own.
The order I do them in is usually to start with the most extreme axis first.
Every time you alter any aspect of the flight you will need to re-trim. Eg climbing descending etc. Never flown a helicopter so I cannot comment on any real world rotor training techniques. Hopefully one day
Hope this helps.
